Shout Outs:

From Jeanette Martinez:

I am going to miss each one of you, It was a hard decision to leave when I felt at home here at Pierce. Thank you everybody for all the fun and great memories. Love you all.

From Yazmeen Aguilar:

Pierce Staff:

It’s been an honor being able to work with you all, thank you for allowing me to come into your classes to provide support whenever needed. I cannot wait to come back and continue working with you next semester! Seeing the love and patience you are able to demonstrate the little pandas has been amazing, it is very clear that all of you have a passion for teaching.

I want to thank everyone for welcoming me as a Pierce Panda and the patience you have also demonstrated with me as a new staff member. I also want to take the time to thank everyone for the baby shower gifts and everyone who helped organize it as well. I truly appreciate everything you all have done for me these past few months. Whether it was asking how baby Camila is doing or being kind enough to offer me advice. Thank you for being such an amazing supportive team, I cannot wait to see you guys again soon. Everyone please stay safe and happy holidays!
